"The White House is the home of the President of the United States, the most guarded, monitored, closely watched person in the world. So how could a U.S. President vanish without a trace? And why would he choose to do so? An unprecedented collaboration between President Bill Clinton and the world's bestselling novelist, James Patterson, The President Is Missing is a breathtaking story from the pinnacle of power. Full of what it truly feels like to be the person in the Oval Office--the mind-boggling pressure, the heartbreaking decisions, the exhilarating opportunities, the soul-wrenching power--this is the thriller of the decade, confronting the darkest threats that face the world today, with the highest stakes conceivable."-- From publisher's description.

The reason for the zero stars - what an awful book to read. I read maybe 30 pages and then felt I should burn it!. James Patterson should have let President Clinton do his own stuff on this book. Good grief.

The plot is too contrived and the President is too alone-trusting no one and unable to delegate even a tiny bit to subordinates. Lonely at the top way overdone and the sermon at the end was likely the only part written by the ex-President

This book started slow and finished preachy. I have always ejoyed Patterson in the past, even though I don't like his politics. Patterson always has a liberal bent; but this book is full of propaganda, especially the end. In short this book has too many pages, too much propaganda, and not enough plot.

This is my first Patterson book so I have nothing to compare it to. Because he co-authored it with Bill Clinton it is also difficult to judge. It is obvious former President Clinton contributed several elements only a president would know about, giving the book plausibility. I enjoyed reading this book and like several other critics, I read it rather quickly despite the 500 pages. I found it well written and devoid of long, often useless descriptions found in many novels. The authors keep us guessing throughout.

I had a hard time getting into this book but halfway through I wanted to know how it ended. It is quite relevant to what could happen today and how crippled we would be it there was a cyber attack. The speech at the end of the book given by the president is well worth the read.

I found the 1st half of the book dull and the other half exciting...cyberterrorism is pretty prevalent these days...spies and espionage not my thing

Excellent! By far the best thing Patterson has ever written. The President’s speech to Congress at the end is solid gold.

Meh... I was hoping for better. It was an okay read. All the politics and government stuff gets a little dull. A hero president who needs to save the world, but he's got a trader in his cabinet.
Who can he trust. Think 24, designated survivor, Jack Ryan.

A Dan Brown style adventure but easier to follow. Enjoyable, especially if you like political thrillers.

This book has to go down as one of my favorites of all time. It had me fully engaged from the very page. I could not put it down until I was done. The book was interesting because it was filled with political and philosophical dilemmas throughout. It made the reader think. It was a perfect blend of action, philosophy and politics.
